PMID:  10363534     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The start of newborn screening for phenylketonuria (PKU) during the early 1970s has given rise to an increasing number of women who have been identified and successfully treated for the disease in childhood and are now preparing to have children of their own. Early detection and initiation of nutritional therapy before conception is key to a successful pregnancy outcome. Nurses who understand the pathophysiology, dietary limitations, and management of PKU in pregnancy can provide the care necessary for optimal maternal and neonatal health.
